BSN: "If our information is correct, May 27th, 2009 will be the launch date of the AMD Opteron 2400 series, e.g. sexa-core processors codenamed Istanbul. As we explained in our previous story, AMD server CPUs are codenamed after Formula One race tracks. Istanbul's predecessor was Shanghai, a track also known to have fascinating races. AMD's original quad-core, Barcelona - was a perfect match of Barcelona's racetrack - buggy and boring as hell."
